49    [GLK:2] evals & evecs for symmetric tensor[3,3] (requires sequences)
50    
51    [GLK:3] Save Diderot output to nrrd, instead of "mip.txt"
52      For grid of strands, save to similarly-shaped array
53      For list of strands, save to long 1-D (or 2-D for non-scalar output) list
54      For ragged things (like tractography output), will need to save both
55        complete list of values, as well as list of start indices and lengths
56        to index into complete list
57    
58    [GLK:4] Use of Teem's "hest" command-line parser for getting
59    any input variables that are not defined in the source file
60    
61    [GLK:5] ability to declare a field in such a way so that probe
62    positions are *always* clamped to the support of "inside";
63    there are many cases where this is the sensible behavior.
64    (More generally, we could also have "repeat" declaration,
65    copying action of GL_REPEAT in texturing)
66    
67  ability to emit/track/record variables into dynamically re-sized  ability to emit/track/record variables into dynamically re-sized
68  runtime buffer  runtime buffer
69    
70  evals & evecs for symmetric tensor[3,3]  Want: allow X *= Y, X /= Y, X += Y, X -= Y to mean what they do in C,
71    provided that X*Y, X/Y, X+Y, X-Y are already supported.
72    Nearly every Diderot program would be simplified by this.
73    
74    Want: non-trivial field expressions & functions:
75      image(2)[2] Vimg = load(...);
76      field#0(2)[] Vlen = |Vimg ⊛ bspln3|;
77    to get a scalar field of vector length, or
78      field#2(2)[] F = Fimg ⊛ bspln3;
79      field#0(2)[] Gmag = |∇F|;
80    to get a scalar field of gradient magnitude, or
81      field#2(2)[] F = Fimg ⊛ bspln3;
82      field#0(2)[] Gmsq = ∇F•∇F;
83    to get a scalar field of squared gradient magnitude, which is simpler
84    to differentiate.  However, there is value in having these, even if
85    the differentiation of them is not supported (hence the indication
86    of "field#0" for these above)
87    
88    Want: ability to apply "normalize" to a field itself, e.g.
89      field#0(2)[2] V = normalize(Vimg ⊛ ctmr);
90    so that V(x) = normalize((Vimg ⊛ ctmr)(x)).
91    Having this would simplify expression of standard LIC method, and
92    would also help express other vector field expressions that arise
93    in vector field feature exraction.
